The Northeast Section of the American Society of Plant Biology is hosting its 81st meeting at Yale University on April 22-23, 2017. The meeting theme is “Interdisciplinary Plant Sciences” and will attempt to capture the collaborative and integrative frontiers of plant sciences. Topics will range from chemical and genetic engineering to global issues of plant science. We encourage participation of young researchers (students, postdoctoral research associates and early career investigators). The organizing committee will select oral presentations from the submitted abstracts. All abstracts submitted on or before March 21, 2017 will be considered for a talk. Abstracts submitted on or before April 7 will be accepted for poster presentations and will be included in the program book.
